My name is Simona and I live in London, UK, with my sisters, a lovely landlady, her pup and a crazy cat.

I love baking, eating, talking and writing – hence, this blog, where I share not only what I cook,but also thoughts and opinions on all matters.

While I am not blogging, I juggle a full time job in the customer service field – leading the bakery department of a cool shop – with friends, food, books and the crazy kitty I mentioned earlier. 

I love strawberries and cream. I have a new born passion for caramel. I listen to mostly the same songs since I was a nerdy teenager in Italy. I love reading. But mostly eating, even though I said that already. I am highly addicted to caffeine, just on the same level as Lorelai Gilmore – just not as cool. I sometimes never ride my bike because I am a scaredy cat on the roads. I do like walking. I hate most veggies and do not really enjoy fruit – even though I am trying hard with both. I can spend a fortune on cookbooks. And on grocery shopping, which happens to be my #1 hobby when bored.

I have a really – girly – thing for shoes and bags, alas shopping is not my favourite thing – unless it’s online!

Black seems to be my colour and grumpy my most popular mood. Until I get my daily caffeine fix which, as I said, is pretty high.

I have a wonderful relationship with my super comfy bed and Netflix, and it seems like it’s going to be a really, really long one.

On the other hand, you have Cristina, one of my sisters. She is moving to London after completing her art & design studies in Italy, in a little village near Venice. She loves animals, cameras and drawing all day long, every day.

She is a pro bread maker and has a degree in cookie eating – oh, how I wish such thing really existed!

She loves our dog, Chicca, to bits, a bit less our lovely and noisy pal Freud,  a wonderfully (un)trained parrot I was given as a present by my as much noisy mum a few years back. She is also the proud owner of a furry ball of grumpiness – a.k.a a bunny – called Sunny, a little rescued hedgehog named Aristotle and a lovely couple of – also rescued – turtles named Joyce and Nora (yup…like James & Nora Joyce!).

Cristina likes history and hates maths – just like myself – loves reading and maybe, one day, will write her own major bestseller! She also happens to be the one that knows more about styling food and food photography.
